Preserved cucumber - gluten free, vegan. Ready to ferment

Where did the summer go??? It feels like autumn is firmly bedded-in here in London. All in the space of a week. However, I am not complaining. Autumn is fabulous. (Queue cliche of kicking fallen leaves!) Wonderful, seasonal, local, fruits and vegetables are still available and now is the time to get preserving. I adore anything pickled, preserved or fermented!!! 

New and exclusive Gluten-Free | Vegan | Allergy-Friendly | Seasonal recipes this week on FriFran…

This week I shared two new recipes that are all about autumn.

Soup is always a great go-to. Usually cheap, often easy and always delicious. Parsnips are great at the moment and Parsnip and Walnut Soup with Walnut Pesto is a fabulous way to make the most of them and the earthy taste of walnuts is perfect with the soup. A very special autumnal weekend supper.

I also shared my first foray in to preserving this year: Preserved Cucumber. The perfect introduction to preserving. Sooo easy, sooo quick and wonderful. These are ready after as little as three days. The younger they are, the crunchier they are. I’m going crazy for sauerkraut too at the moment – look out for that recipe soon! 🙂
